I don't remember exactly where I got it from, but I searched for 'catalyst 12.4 preview', and a few links came up.

Can't get afterburner to let me fiddle with the voltage on this so leaving it as is for now until next beta version is out or I figure out a different way. Topped out at 1130 core 1500 mem but died at anything higher so dropped it back down to where it's at now.

P.S. Anybody else have this card showing up at x8 in an x16 slot? o.o No amount of load is making it boost back up to x16 so I'm thoroughly confused. Have tried different pcie slots on my board too so it may just be that it's not a gen3 board :S.

As far as I know gen3 is just a controller/firmware/software upgrade? My board is gen3 but there is nothing physically different with the 2x-3x slot.

Doesn't seem like it should be a problem. It's showing up at x16 in the bios/efi?

Having 2 issues:

First, the card is still throwing up very small different colored squares all over the screen when idle.

Second, the powertune +/- 20% bar isn't showing up in AMD overdrive. I uninstalled and reinstalled Catalyst but it's still not there. Any idea what is causing either of these?

Really hoping I don't have to RMA this thing...

Haven't checked bios yet will do that soon as I finish leeching from this warcraft raid. Good catch!

Edit: Have no clue where in bios to check what the pcie slots are running the card at but going to try the other 2 slots left tomorrow after work. Will update then.

Hey guys, lovely thread you have here. I read through most of the current 47 pages hoping to find what I was looking for. Although I really have not at this point. I was stuck between getting a GTX570 and an HD7870, up until today I was sold on the GTX570. After reading about faulty VRM's and issues with lackluster overclocking ive decided against the GTX570. Not to mention the HD7870 will perform on par with the GTX580, which is certainly a bonus.

My question is related to branding, it seems there are a few different options, yet I cant really decide based on what I see, which would be the best. I initially wanted a card with two DVI outputs, but noticed that currently only XFX supports that feature, and from what it looks like, it comes at a premium. I can definitely live without a second DVI considering all of the cards sport at least on HDMI output. Which brand is the best in terms of cooling, and noise?

I noticed in a photo from one of the members here that with their Sapphire card, there is a pretty basic, but functional VRM sink installed. Although simplistic, im surprised by this feature, its definitely a nice bonus. Do all the cards have VRM cooling?

For me, im pretty much trying to decide between the MSI Twin Frozr, the Sapphire OC, and the Asus DC2. Ive had good luck with Sapphire, so I would not hesitate to purchase another one of their cards. I just want to get the best quality card for the money.

Any help would be appreciated! I anticipate becoming a member here very soon!

they are all great cards, and the 7850 out performs the 570 and 580 the 680 is the only non AMD card that beats it currently, i have the Asus one, its very very VERY quiet even at a huge overclock, runs cool as can be and eats anything i throw at it. its relaly about look, color, perhaps price, and warranty, that's whats going to help you choose

On the First Post you should put links to MSI AB Beta 14, Asus GPU Tweak 2.06, GPU-Z 0.60 and the linkt to the DLL people needs to get clock readings in MSI AB and such.
If you want i can put this in the First Post to. We both can keep editing the first post with usefull information we find, that is if you want me to offcourse.
I wont be editing your posts without permission wink.gif

lol
Well, I don't mind. If you want to PM me necessary links, that's fine too. I've been on and off OCN because of my hectic schedule, but I will maintain priority to this thread. I already took care of the latter two links, all I need is the latest MSI beta. So, to take care of it quickly, just PM me the right links and we'll be on our way.

Again, I apologize for the lack of appearances. I work in a theme park and with Spring Break going on, I work 12 hour days. by the time I come home, I'm dead to the world.

To my situation:
The jumps in my clocks don't stop. This worries me greatly because my "idle temps" are hitting somewhere around 48-52*C. This happens no matter what I do whether it's web surfing or opening ANY programs, I just get these spikes. They don't regulate either.

I'll tell you what I've seen so far in reviews.

For the Sapphire: great, and the most bought model.

For the Gigabyte (3 fan model): noise, noise, noise.

Btw, the PowerColor PCS+ HD 7870 also comes with two DVI.

7970 prices to drop over the next few days. Maybe AMD will lower all 7xxx series prices!!

After weeks of dealing with a retail price that put their HD 7970 in a no-win position against the GTX 680, it looks like AMD will finally cut their flagship card’s price.

Last month, we reported that AMD was sticking to their guns by retaining the HD 7970′s SRP at $549 regardless of NVIDIA’s higher performing and lower priced GTX 680. The reasoning behind this seemed to be quite simple: capitalize upon high end sales since NVIDIA’s production was struggling to keep up with demand.

At the time, we surmised that the only thing which would effectively push AMD to lower prices would be either improved GTX 680 availability or the possible release of lower priced Kepler derivatives. It looks like AMD’s bean counters may know something we don’t. If our moles are correct, the HD 7970 and possibly other cards in the HD 7000-series lineup are about to get a price cut.

The whispers we have heard from a number of sources peg the HD 7970′s new price at some point between $470 and $490 within the next few days. In our books, this would put AMD’s Tahiti XT in a favorable position against the GTX 680, particularly when the board partners’ numerous overclocked and custom cooled versions are taken into account.

What this means for the rest of AMD’s cards is anyone’s guess but as we previously discussed, cutting the price on one could very well have a cascade effect upon their whole product stack.

Naturally, as we receive more information it will be posted so stay tuned. It looks like the GPU Wars are just beginning to heat up!
